1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 406 405HP
1963 1/2 Ford Very Rare Galaxie 500 Fastback. Very few 406s were produced in the sleek Fastback body. The new 427 was to be introduced in this body but during a 14 day transition period Fords ten plants building full size cars produced a handful of fastback 406s to use up the 406 inventory. These late 406s used cross bolt mains, a forged steel crank, mechanical lifters and header-style cast iron Exhaust manifolds popularized on the 427. Around 90 total G code 406s were built in the Fastback body. Not sure how many are left as I have not seen another one in person. The only one I have seen was in a 1995 Muscle Car Review Magazine which was black with red interior. This is a all original un-restored 30k mile car. Factory special ordered G code 6-V 406 405hp engine. Have the original window sticker. Correct T10 4-speed, 3 inch brakes, heavy duty springs, 9 inch rear, Moser 31 spline axles, 350 gears. Original and rare factory 15x5.5 Kelsey Hays wheels. Options-Sandshell beige paint, Padded dash, Sun visors, AM radio, Seat belts, Clock, Tinted glass. Also have chrome reversed wheels which are on the car in the video as well as a set of 5-spoke Americans. Looks, runs and drives excellent. There were a lot more 427 cars built in this body style. Making this exceptional unrestored high performance 406 one of the rarest Fastback Galaxies built. Car is sold.
